Hopper Brings Big-Data-as-a-Service to Online Travel Planning

Fred Lalonde likes to get right to the point when talking about the impetus behind his Big Data start-up.

“The problem we’re trying to solve is it actually sucks to plan a trip,” says Lalonde, co-founder of Hopper, a Boston-based start-up that is developing a new approach to the online travel based on Big Data technologies. The company plans to launch its new service later this summer.

Hopper is also the company behind Hack/Reduce, which Lalonde describes as “the best idea we never had,” and is a founding participant in bigdata@CSAIL, the MIT/Commonwealth of Massachusetts initiative to support Big Data startups in the Boston area. Recently he stepped into theCUBE to discuss Hopper with Wikibon Chief Analyst David Vellante.

Trip planning is “a really painful experience, and over the last 10 years there hasn’t been that much innovation there,” says Lalonde, who left Expedia in 2007 to co-found Hopper to find a better answer.
